4 Personal and Meaningful Gift Ideas for the Mother of the Bride

As a bride-to-be, you and your fiancé will likely receive a number of lovely and heartwarming gifts to celebrate your upcoming marriage.

In addition to being the recipient of gifts, you’ll also have the opportunity to give gifts to several important people connected with your wedding, including members of your wedding party and your mom.

While you expected to give something to your attendants, you may not realize it’s traditional to present the mother of the bride with a gift during the rehearsal dinner. You love your mom to the moon and back and are happy to give her something — but you’re just not sure what would be an appropriate gift that’s not too over the top.

To get your gift-giving wheels turning, consider the following suggestions:

1. Personalized Photo Pillow

Your mom loves it when you text her cute photos of you and your sweetie and has proclaimed a number of them to be her favorites. Knowing this, one fun yet meaningful custom gift you can give her is to choose one of those heartwarming photos and transform it into a darling photo pillow, complete with your names. Indeed, your mom will be sure to place this pillow front and center on her couch and will enjoy this unique yet useful accessory that reminds her of you.

2. Wine Tumbler

You’ve watched in amusement as your mom has told pretty much everyone she knows — and a few people she doesn’t — that she will soon be the mother of the bride. Acknowledge her excitement for this role by giving her a silicone-wrapped wine tumbler, with “Mother of the Bride” in a shimmery rose gold cursive font. The tumbler can be used at your rehearsal dinner, and moving forward, can hold her wine, water, juice, or whatever other beverages she enjoys.

3. A Promise of Your Time

Yes, your mom adores your fiancé, and yes, she’s so excited about your wedding that she can barely sit still at times. But you also know your mom will miss getting to see you as often as before, as you start your new life as a Mrs. To help alleviate any anxiety she may be feeling, find ways to reassure her that you’ll continue to spend time with her. You could treat her to a few gift cards — one to a spa, one to a coffee shop, and one to her favorite restaurant — and present them to her at the rehearsal dinner while promising that even though you’re getting married, you still want to spend time with your beloved mom.

4. Charm Bracelet

Another personal gift for your mom that isn’t too extravagant is this “Mother of the Bride” charm bangle. The bracelet, which comes in gold or silver, is expandable and features a charm surrounded by leafy branches. If your mom already has a charm bracelet, you could give her a couple of meaningful charms, like those featuring your birthstone and hers, a heart, and/or your initials.

Honor Your Amazing Mother

Your mom has always been there for you, and you know you couldn’t have planned your wedding without her help, support and encouragement. By presenting her with a meaningful and personal gift, you can thank her for all she’s done for you and show how much you love her.
